Publisher's Summary

You look up when you wish to be exalted. And I look down because I am exalted.

The higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.

One repays a teacher badly if one always remains nothing but a pupil.

There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.

But the worst enemy you can meet will always be yourself; you lie in wait for yourself in caverns and forests. Lonely one, you are going the way to yourself! And your way goes past yourself, and past your seven devils! You will be a heretic to yourself and witch and soothsayer and fool and doubter and unholy one and villain. You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame: how could you become new, if you had not first become ashes?

Simply Amazing

A very good and dense book. I don't know if it was the prose, the translation, or the age of language in the text, but I found myself listening to a few passages multiple times to really understand it. But all-and-all, a great audio book.

Great Narrator

Obstinate, intrepid, emphatic, piercing, dismissive, entreating all apply to the Nietzsche's provocative masterpiece, masterfully translated with numerous less melodramatic choices in interpretation by the editors.

Awesome

Though I bought it used, the book is in great condition. To be a complete philosopher I feel one has to know Nietzsche as well as Plato and the other greats lovers of wisdom.

Lovely

This is a very good translation with useful footnotes. It also exposes the German words used by Nietzsche with contextual meaning so that the reader can have a deeper understanding of his ideas.

Excellent Overview

I've seen some things on Nietzsche before and it seems that translating him is difficult and of course subjective. This book is fairly well and I would recommend it.
